Tea Cup Gin plays jazz and show tunes from early 20th century. One of the most influential periods of American music, the early 1900s witnessed the first published blues, the explosion of ragtime, and the birth of jazz. Tea Cup Gin draws inspiration from performers such as Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller, Hoagy Carmichael, W.C. Handy, and Billie Holiday. With two guitars, a bass, and vocals, their performances are reminiscent of parlor music. Mike Maloney’s rhythmic bass lines, and the interplay of guitarists Mike Reid and John Klonowski bring a fresh approach to classic American music. The award winning members of Tea Cup Gin are sure to delight you.
